But why keep using metacity themes? GTK could handle the window frame
like every other widget using the main GTK theme. I fail to see the
usefulness of having 2 themes to style a window. If backwards
compatibility is required then maybe a GTK module with access to that
metacity library could be loaded into all apps.
